Hm...  when you mentioned that the Windows GnuTLS functions used our own
functions for the actual pull/push, I thought that perhaps the problem
was there (and was about to suggest the patch below), but this must mean
that the socket isn't even created.

`make-network-socket' ends with

  /* If we're doing async address resolution, the list of addresses
     here will be nil, so we postpone connecting to the server. */
  if (!p->is_server && NILP (ip_addresses))
      p->dns_request = dns_request;
      p->status = Qconnect;
      connect_network_socket (proc, ip_addresses);
  connect_network_socket (proc, ip_addresses);

so that should happen unconditionally on Windows.

Let's see...

Oh!  This code in connect_network_socket looks suspect, perhaps.  If it
fails, then the socket will never actually be created...  hm...  but it
may be caught later...  and it doesn't explain why non-blocking non-TLS
sockets still work...  so it can't be that...

      if (p->is_non_blocking_client)
          ret = fcntl (s, F_SETFL, O_NONBLOCK);
          if (ret < 0)
              xerrno = errno;
              emacs_close (s);
              s = -1;

So perhaps it's in the TLS code anyway.  Could you try the following
code?  It'll make TLS negotiation blocking on WINDOWSNT again.
